A Decked-Out Game Room Provides Hours of Fun for the Whole Family

In the same way that the kitchen is a busy space designed to bring people together, the game room is also a place for family fun. Modern game rooms are constructed to fit pool tables, video consoles, card tables, and large-scale table sports, such as foosball, table tennis, and air hockey. Here are five game rooms tailor-made for friendly family competition.

4412 Lakeside

The game room inside the Highland Park estate at 4412 Lakeside Drive has an energetic, fun-loving atmosphere. This game room features a fireplace, abundant natural light, and space for table tennis, video games, a poker table, and more.

6207 Rex

The game room inside the four-bedroom estate at 6207 Rex Drive is made for billiards aficionados. There’s room for a champion-size table and accessories, plus plenty of space for old-school video games and sports memorabilia.

6130 Desco

The nearly 7,000-square-foot home at 6130 Desco Drive features a beautifully designed game room that’s large enough for a billiards table, sofa, high-top table and chairs, and jukebox.

4612 Isabella

4612 Isabella Lane is made for entertaining indoors and out. While you’ll find a sport court and zip line in the backyard, the second floor features an expansive game room that can accommodate a pool table, a foosball table, video games, and seating, and there’s still plenty of space left over for more.

5139 Seneca

The regally designed game room at 5139 Seneca Drive is just as exquisite as the rest of the 16,000-square-foot Bluffview estate. The space has room for a billiards table and abundant seating. The parquet wood floors, columns, and bronze flair add a touch of sophistication.

The gracious two-story foyer is highlighted by a sweeping staircase. To the left is the large, light-filled formal living room. To the right is the elegant formal dining room with custom-lit built-ins.




The center of the home is the fully appointed island kitchen with custom-painted cabinetry, granite counters, tile backsplash, commercial-grade appliances, and a large walk-in pantry. It’s complemented by a cheerful breakfast room with a double stone fireplace and an adjacent, oversized family room. Quality appointments in this alluring space include a cathedral ceiling with exposed wood trusses, beautiful window treatments, a wood-burning fireplace, ample built-ins, and three sets of French doors overlooking the outdoor living area. A walk-in wet bar serves this informal area, while walls of windows bathe it in natural light and provide soothing views of the outdoors.




The master suite is truly a retreat, with high ceilings, a sitting area, and a sumptuous bath with dual vanities, separate shower and jetted tub, private water closet, and separate walk-in closets. Also located on the first level are a guest bedroom with full bath, and a large laundry room with plenty of cabinet and counter space.




The second level houses three additional bedrooms, three full baths, one half-bath, a sitting area overlooking the foyer, a large game room, a wet bar, and a theater-style media room.




Luxury and enjoyment continues outdoors in the large loggia with a fireplace and ceiling fans, landscaped grassy area, and a sparkling pool and spa. “Beautiful landscaping, towering trees, and an overall feeling of comfort and warmth permeate this stunning home,” Cain says.
